could be a dumb question, but can acrylic knit shorts work like shorties?

My Mom wanted to practice knitting shorties w/o spending alot, so she bought some 100% acrylic yarn to practice the pattern. They look great, but like I said, aren't wool. I'm assuming I can use them over a regular cover but if I change him often enough, will theywork as a cover or will it just wet right through?

acrylic works well as covers but they arent as breathable as wool. You dont have lanolize them and can wash them with regular laundry. But they have to be wash every use or every other. I have used acrylic in winter and never had leaks with them.

WEll cool. I didn't want to waste them, so I dont mind using t hem and washing every time I use them- I could use them for a day and then wash, right? We have alot of cool days here in summer - a mix of very hot or cool- and its always coola tnight, so they'll get some use. Thanks!
